No New Posts   Stubborn rust stain

March 2, 2017

Hey all, wondering if anyone can shed some light on this problem...We recently did a rust stain removal job on the patio concrete in a client's backyard. Every other stain came up with one coat of BARC just as it always does, but one stain has yet to fully come out. The mark was left by a steel shade umbrella base. It is now clear that some "chunks" of rust from the umbrella stand have become bonded to the concrete. I've treated the stains at least half a dozen times, even went in with a wire brush to try and break up the build up a bit. Didn't effect it much.

Any ideas on how to fully clear this stain? The client is very understanding, but I assured her I would try to get to the bottom of this before I accept payment for the job.

The photo is a 'before' shot. The remaining stain is smaller, and localized around a few spots about the size of a nickel.

No New Posts   Iron soil amendment pellet stains on brand new concrete

December 3, 2016

Poor customer had very recently had a brand new driveway and sidewalks poured.  With that job crossed off his list, he decided to revitalize his front lawn.  Soil test results said it was "iron poor" and the nursery told him to apply iron pellets to help amend the soil.  His only mistake was that he neglected to blow the pellets off of his new concrete work before it rained overnight. no

This was a rather large area project for our first experience with F9 BARC on concrete.  The below pictures are of the test section we did in the first joint section of the sidewalk.

No New Posts   Recent Rust Removal Project

November 8, 2016

My customer called to have the house washed and also said he had a very nasty rust stain on his siding due to his air handler drain pan.  He asked if I thought anything could be done.  Needless to say, he was elated with the results.  

Sorry the pictures are not staged as well as could be, but I was trying to work in conjunction with another crew who was trying to replace the door located below the rust stain.

March 31, 2013

Thank you, AC for this amazing video!  I've used it on my hotwash burner and it worked GREAT!  If you spray a little F9 BARC Rust Remover and use a 0000 steel wool (really quick scrub) all the rust came off my rig and it looks like new.  Another great use for F9 BARC guys!

April 19, 2013

Pool guys make $400-$800 for doing this.  You can make that in an hour with F9 barc and cause no damage to the siding.  Hire a pool guy for $100 to empty and refill the pool.  Go in, apply F9 and collect your check.



No New Posts   Great F9 BARC Rust Remover Testimonial!

March 31, 2013



I bought a gallon of F9 at the NJ event last week and it came in very handy yesterday.  I had a customer who had some iron water stains (rust) on his siding and a beautiful vinyl trelace that he tried many times to get off.  After I softwashed everything I went back, mixed up a little F9, sprayed it on and the rust stains magically disappeared. I did it right in front of the customer, because he did'nt believe I could and it was above my original scope of work.  He tipped me an extra 50 bucks and already wrote a stellar review on Angies List for me.  The moral of the story is that I ordered a case when I got in my truck, and I would like to become certified by F9 and be able to put it on my website and promote it. I have always used other methods the remove rust, but this was the most effective I have ever used.  I would like to add a tab to my web page for just rust remove services.

No New Posts   Today's Concrete Restoration.. Lots of Damage!

March 16, 2013

Today's restoration work using F9 BARC Rust Remover. This customer had a LOT of damage from a previous contractor who tried to remove the battery rust stain. They etched and burned the concrete pretty badly. We used the F9 Process and surface cleaned in two directions followed by two applications of F9 BARC, mist with water, broom and rinse.



No New Posts   Paver Cleaning (Hard Water Stains), Oil and Battery Rust on Concrete

March 13, 2013

Restored these pavers today with our F9 Hard Water Stain Remover. This will be available this summer. Then we went on to another job with oil and battery stains. For this we used EBC, pressure washed, then followed up with F9 BARC Rust Remover. Needless to say both customers were impressed and very satisfied! We use our Sirocco for water recovery when using our Hard Water Stain Remover so nothing goes down the storm drains.

No New Posts   Rust Removal on an Entire Building with F9

October 30, 2012

Ideal Steel Building in Seneca, South Carolina.

This steel fabrication plant was getting ready to paint, but wanted the buildings cleaned first. This is a very busy steel fabrication plant and there is always a dust of steel in the air from all the cutting, drilling and grinding that goes on there. All this dust settles on the surfaces of the buildings and particularly around the outside of the doors, creating a very unsightly array of rust stains. F9 BARC, the World’s Best Concrete Rust Remover was approved for use on this building to remove the rust stains.

F9 Professional Applicator Len Sutton from Sea To Summit Pressure Washing in South Carolina was chosen for this job.
